in los angeles. >> hey, bill. good morning, everyone. vice president joe biden is meeting with the house today getting ready to, to put together that list of recommendations to curb gun violence. there is one point where both sides agree, punishing people who lie on their background checks. until 2010, nearly 80,000 people were denied guns for lying or giving inaccurate information about their criminal history. but, only 44 of those people were actually charged with a crime. this is one of the issues joe biden's task force is looking at and we can last timing expect his plan to include a stronger focus on background checks. those recommendations to the president could come as early as tomorrow. the group is also looking at mental health treatment, violence in video games and movies and a potential ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazine clips. the nra is, of course showing strong obviouspposition to. this yesterday ocnn's face the nation, group president david keen said an assault weapons ban will not make its way through congress.

their own bullets, regular gun enthusiasts, are they going to listen to these nut cases or to joe biden when he offers proposals next week on background checks and high capacity magazines. who are the people that are going to decide this issue? i mean, the gun owners going to go with, the wild bunch or the town posse? david corn is washington bureau chief for "mother joseph" and joey reid is managing editor of "the grewo." joey, the regular gun owners, pennsylvania ooip owners, practice sheeting and get good at it with a couple of shots, that's all you get with a deer, are they going to go with the nuts? >> you know what, chris, i grew up in colorado, people who hunted. colorado is a big hunting state and i don't think anybody i've ever met that's a responsible gun owner can side with for lack of a better word these loony tunes out here because they are doing something different. they are stockpiling. they are getting assault rifles. these are not normal gun owners what. you're hearing from now is the absolute fringe, and, unfortunately, they are being allowed to speak for the pro second ame

spoken of this. not going to back off on it. whereas some of us thought frankly watching joe biden and talking to people around a this task force that he was not going to go there, when this gets reported to the president, very quickly, by the end of this month, he is going to take some very big steps. it is a fight he wants to take on clearly. they may not get it. the politics aren't there yes. but he is going to at least engage congress on. >> i have a couple of minutes and a couple things want to get to quickly. first of all, for you, mayor booker, you are taking on some of these big debates and might take them on in the senate. you filed your papers to run for the senate in new jersey to take on a senator lautenberg. is that what you intend to do? will you run? >> again, you have to file the papers even to do research on the issue, even to travel on the issue. so, we are complying with the law before we do any exploration of the senate run. we have got to file an account. that is my intention. it is over a year away. a lot is going to change between now and then. >> senator lau
